Collignoniceratidae is a family of Upper Cretaceous ammonites characterized by typically more or less evolute shells with compressed, oval, or square whorl sections; serrate or entire keels; and dense ribs with one to 5 tubercles.
This family, named by Wright and Wright in 1951, is divided into four subfamilies; Collignoniceratinae, Barroisiceratinae, Peroniceratinae, and Texanitinae. The family is included in the large ammonitid superfamily Acanthoceratoidea which lasted until the end of the Cretaceous.
